Indeed. Here is a quick scan of the list of maintainers who have not posted to cygwin or cygwin-apps for a few years:

Andreas Seidl (TeXmacs) -- 2005
Daniel Boesswetter (tcm) -- 2003
Dave&  Diane (mlcscope) -- 2009
Joe Linoff (ccdoc) -- 2004
Jonathan C. Allen (bsflite, keychain, naim, ncftp, tnef) -- 2007
Mauricio Antune (rlwrap) -- 2006
Robert Richter (apache-1.x) -- 2005
Ross Smith II (email) -- 2009
Stefan Bjoernelund (aspell-sv) -- 2007

aspell-sv is mine already.


Volker Quetschke (grace, ImageMagick) -- 2008
Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes (fortune) -- 2009

Cool, thanks you! Hey, guys, is anybody of you still alive, still using Cygwin, still interested in maintaining your packages, and would like to take the opportunity to update your packages to a newer upstream version?

Thanks, Corinna

Ciao Volker
